Erika is an Access Program Manager who previously served as an Access Coach in 2014 – 2015 and 2015 – 2016. Erika has also worked as an assistant college adviser for two years at a local Austin high school. Postsecondary access is definitely one of her passions! She holds a degree in Latin American Studies from St. Edward’s University, and an M. Ed in Student Development from Angelo State University. Fun fact about Erika is that she is a student alum of College Forward, so you could say that CoFo runs through her veins! Outside of work you can find her hiking, going to trivia, taking naps with her Shih-Tzu, Valentina, and also likes to discuss the wizarding world of Harry Potter.
